My first full week in Oklahoma City feels like the perfect time to introduce myself again!
So hey 👋, I’m Rachel, and here are a few quick things to know about me:
1️⃣ I just moved to OKC from Texas with my husband Brandon and my Quarter Horse Herbie (aka Herbert, aka Herbalicious). Herb and I enjoy competing in ranch riding when we canand Brandon enjoys making every horse pun under the sun.
2️⃣I was *that* horse nerd kid. 4H, hippology, horse judging, drill team, FFAI did it all! Every essay and school project that I couldyup, horses. So much of who I grew up to be, though, is thanks to horses: confident, well spoken, empatheticghostly pale legs 👻🤷♀️hardworkingso, uh, mostly good things!
3️⃣I fell in love with photography through horses, too. First at my summer job for YMCACampTecumseh ‘s equestrian program and then as editor for OfficialAPHA magazines. I couldn’t get enough of photography there, so I branched out on my own in 2016. I love getting to connect with other horsewomen, nerd out about their sweet ponies & make meaningful images of the horse-human bond that only rider really “get" ❤️
4️⃣Honestly, I'm not naturally great at sharing on social media (my personal IG is basically just tagging Brandon in effinbirds posts 😂) but I always love the connections I make when I doespecially the ones I've gotten to make through portraits & ponies! So if you're new to following me please say HI in the comments! 👇
